THE PROPERTY

This delightful five-bedroom open-plan country residence is a striking modern home created to strict energy-efficient standards and triple glazed so that it maintains an almost constant temperature. Sympathetically designed to fit with the local vernacular and be a modern take on a barn conversion. It sits in immaculate gardens with views of open fields and enough space to park several cars. It has been designed to provide spacious and contemporary accommodation with exposed beams and gable ceilings in many of the rooms. On the ground floor the hallway, with slate floor tiles, leads into a boot room with three built-in cupboards. Off the hallway is a shower room with lavatory and heated towel rail and a separate utility room. The spacious kitchen includes Bosch appliances and a 5ft by 4ft cook's island with cherry wood worktop. There is also a walk in larder and cupboard housing the heat exchanger. The house is warmed by solar gain and thick insulation so there is minimal need for heating. The heat exchanger warms fresh air coming into the house as old air is circulated out. The kitchen flows into the dining room, which then steps down to the two further reception rooms with views of the garden and terrace. There are also French windows from the dining room.
